PERSIAN BLUE SALT

PERSIAN BLUE SALT

Another reason to love San Francisco: Spice Ace in Pacific Heights. Where this exotic Persian Blue Salt was acquired for our salt library. It’s rock salt with a light mineral taste. Proprietor Olivia Dillan oversees an encyclopedic collection of spices and is eager to have you sniff and taste to your hearts content.     […]
